Top Prussian Ministers Discuss Leaving the Russian Alliance.

KOENIGSBERG, Prussia (AP):  An inside source has leaked that the Chancellor and her cabinet are holding high level meetings with the Council of Prussia about the future of the alliance with Russia. It appears that since the Russian invasion of Ukraine following the Crimean annexation. That some members at the top of government have become concerned. Although publicly Prussia has had no issue with the Crimean annexation it has not voiced support for the invasion of Eastern Ukraine.

Already in Karakistan PDF forces have begun the transfer of command of Camp Condor to the Russian Army. With most troops & equipment being flown home over the last few days under the pretense that conflict with Lithuania could be eminent as well as an uptempo in our advisory role with the Mafeking forces in southern Africa.

Rumor has it that since the introduction of the Prussian Mark (PM) and the establishment of German as an official language that many ministers are leaning closer to Germany. Especially since it was the Germans who provided top intel during the Polish-Prussian War of 2010.

Some ministerial aides have hinted of patriotic parades and other Pro-Prussian activities being planned around the country. Quickly followed by an announcement of the end of Russian as an official language. Others have mentioned that Prussia's lone oil rig in the Baltic Sea has been ordered to increase operational days from 15 per month to 20. The same has been applied to the refinery in Cranz.

An announcement is expected in the coming weeks as to what position the Chancellor's government will take. Certainly any step away from Russia possibly emboldens Poland to invade Prussia. However an independent and non-Russia aligned Prussia is a strength for the neighboring Baltic states. They don't want Russia back on both borders again.

Meanwhile in Washington DC some analysts at the CIA and NSA have speculated that Prussia has been developing an atomic weapon in secret despite guarantees from both Prussia and Russia to the contrary.

Patriotic Prussian emblems are popping up all over the tiny country.

Border War - Angola Raiders by Decision Games

Picked this game up from eBay. It is a solo wargame and I think it's a good game. I enjoyed playing despite the last minute defeat at the hands of SWAPO. Here are some pictures.

Nice neat packaging.

SADF units start out on the left. I had the map dry mounted to keep it flat and extend its service life.

SADF counters and game cards.

Place enemy counters, SWAPO, Cubans, etc in a bowl to randomly select forces.
